Everyone wants a local like Three Blue Ducks. It's a must for breakfast, but things move up a notch as the day rolls on. The atmosphere is proudly the antithesis of fine dining - small, cosy, lived-in rooms and a relaxed team on the floor create a sense of being at an old friend's house. There's a strong focus on sustainability, with produce sourced locally (including from the beehives and garden out the back) and an emphasis on organic and biodynamic products. Buttermilk fried chicken is crisp and juicy, and provides a counterpoint to an entrée of spicy labne with fermented carrots and lavosh. Of the more substantial dishes, the pepperberry kangaroo with Dutch carrots and cavolo nero stands out. The tempting selection of local craft beers and wines deserves attention. To finish, lemon curd topped with salted meringue is exceptional, and we can't help but be fond of a place that lists a cocktail on the dessert list - rum, honeycomb, chocolate and falernum.
